Check you're thermostats for continuity, they are normally 3 thermostats, reset stats have a button on them please press, if not thermostat its your heating element

I have a kenmore 600 series dryer that runs but does not heat up. I assume that the heating element is bad. Would that be a good assumption?

I have an kenmore 600 series clothes dryer. It's about 1.5 years old. The dryer tumbles. gas and electric are on but no heat.


It is most likely the element if it is an electric dryer. If it is a gas dryer be sure that the pilot light is on for the gas at the valve.Also this machine is most likely under warranty so check it out.
I am 90 % sure that is an electric dryer so I would check to see that one of your breakers for the dryer are not tripped as one can run the dryer but it needs two to get the heat running as it runs on 220 volt.

Our dryer was running fine and now it wont turn on.


It could be the timer or a safety switch that keeps it from over heating.Sears used to sell a home owner repair manual.You can call Sears Parts Central or go to the web site and give them the model number and see if they have the manual. It is a pretty good easy to follow manual with a good trouble shooting section.

DRYER RUNS, BUT WILL NOT HEAT


Do you have fuses or breaker? If you have fuses one fuse may be burnt out.
